Trip Basics //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

  • Our standard mission trip length is 10 to 14 days, but we will accept applications for trips of other lengths. See our Ways to Serve and Neighbors Project sections for ideas on how you or your team could serve while in Haiti.
  • When serving with NWHCM, we coordinate your travel, housing, food, and logistics for ministry. We have been hosting short-term mission teams for more than 30 years and we see you as a vital part of who we are and what we do.
  • We welcome mission teams of all sizes, as well as individuals who want to serve in our ongoing ministries. We are also open to families who want to serve together.
  • If you are a team leader, or want to organize a Mission Team, please contact us (see below).

Costs

NWHCM offers two packages from which to choose for your trip, depending on your needs. Please indicate your package preference on your trip application when applying.

 

Package 1: The Weekend Warrior

This package includes up to five nights on campus. It is perfect for those who need a Haiti fix, have just a few extra vacation days to use, or want to spend your spring break with NWHCM.

Option A: Adventure Package
This is a great roundtrip way to travel to Saint-Louis du Nord, via bus or Land Rover. This six-hour ride across the beautiful and startling countryside of Haiti is worth the time to experience fully the land and people where we serve. You will experience firsthand the beautiful mountain views, the valleys, vistas, desert and lush forest, as you drive across the changing terrains that make up Haiti.

Price: Airfare to Haiti, plus $750*
Includes all accommodations, three meals a day, travel expenses in the northwest zone, translators and security.

**Please Note: Sometimes there is an overnight required in Florida or Port-au-Prince. These hotel nights are not included in the trip price but will be divided out by the number of travelers so that everyone is charged our costs. 

Option B: Want to fly to the mission instead of bus?
This option gives you the fastest route to the Northwest, without the cross-country adventure. Tortuga Air is no longer making regular-scheduled flights to the northwest. Please inquire about the costs of chartering MAF. They currently have 5-seater & 9-seater planes. They fill up fast. It's possible that we will not be able to accomidate this option. Please note that if you choose this option you may have to overnight in Miami or Port-au-Prince to make your connecting flights.

*Please note there will be an extra $120 fee if your return flight to the U.S. requires an overnight hotel stay in Port-au-Prince.

The “Fine Print”

Refunds: NWHCM is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax code, all contributions to NWHCM are non-refundable. Therefore, NWHCM cannot refund any payments made for internships or mission trips; Your trip “payment” and any gifts made toward your trip are contributions that are pooled into ministry and operating budgets. Per IRS requirements, all contributions are administered under the full control and authority of NWHCM, and funds are used specifically for expenses related to those ministry activities.

Cancellation: Travelers who cancel their trip for reasons such as a medical or family emergency have the option to apply their trip balance toward a future NWHCM mission trip, or to transfer or designate those funds toward another person’s trip. Both options are available for the 12 months following the date of the original team’s departure. That trip balance will be determined after subtracting any costs already incurred (such as airline tickets).

Excess Funds: Excess monies raised will be held for 12 months in case the individual decides to take another mission trip with NWHCM during that time. After one year, any remaining money will be redirected to the ministries of Northwest Haiti Christian Mission.
